All hail the Chicks!!

WOW. That word sums it up.

Hubster and I went to the Dixie Chicks concert last night at the Air Canada Centre in downtown Toronto. It was my first concert at the ACC and it was phenomenal!

I’m not going to lie to you. I was DREADING going yesterday afternoon. I was SO exhausted from Hubster’s party on Saturday night and the thought of going to a loud concert, and being up until midnight AGAIN was killing me. I actually tried to GIVE the $110 each tickets away to friends, but it was too late notice. Thank goodness for that! It was amazing!

The Dixie Chicks are SO, SO talented. They play their instruments with ease and Natalie’s voice is so powerful for such a little lady!! Martie and Emily’s voices just “go” with Natalie’s so well. They sound EXACTLY like the record when singing live! They don’t need any fancy costumes or special effects. They just wowed us with their music.

There must have been 20,000 people there, mostly women. I just knew that 95% of the men there were dragged their by their wives/girlfriends, Hubster being one of them. BUT…he enjoyed it! He “WOOT!”ed and he clapped and I think I actually saw him singing along to “Good-Bye Earl”!!

The Chicks played all of their big hits, including “Long Time Gone”, “Landslide”, “Travellin’ Soldier”, “Wide Open Spaces”, “Ready to Run”, “Sin Wagon”, “White Trash Wedding”, “Not Ready to Make Nice” as well as a few not-so-well-known-YET from their new album and one from their new film. The Chicks have a new movie out called, “Shut Up and Sing” based on the controversy over Natalie’s comment about being ashamed that the president came from her home state of Texas. It looks like a great film.

So, considering how badly I didn’t want to go last night, I am SO glad I did go. The time flew by and I remember thinking I wish it didn’t have to end…they played for a full two hours and it still wasn’t enough! Now I can’t wait ’till they come back again! Pin It
